A radical break from the rustic mountain cabin with a design motif of pinecones, bears and rainbow trout, this stunning Cashiers, North Carolina home was the site of the 2018 Cashiers Designers Showhouse sponsored by Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles and the Cashiers Historical Society. Rooms instead featured big city flair considering most designers hailed from Atlanta, but also from New Orleans, and the Highlands and Cashiers, North Carolina region. Inspired by chateaux in France and Italy, this 42-acre estate overlooking Lake Glenville was decorated with some au courant trends including lots of assertive, stylish wallpaper, a preponderance of soft pastels, plenty of Chinoiserie and subtle nods to the beautiful local surroundings in botanicals and floral motifs.
This stylish master bedroom features a contemporary neutral leather platform bed paid with a brown wooden headboard and floral print bed linens. Textured wallpaper adds a fun touch, while brown leather armchairs offer a small spot to relax. Large windows offer a view of the gorgeous mountainside.
Designers wanted to bring the outdoors in, so they covered the home's half bathroom with wallpaper that would simulate forest trees. Then, they added a rich, wood vanity and shelf made from local trees and a funky vessel sink. Finally, the design was finished off with a chandelier to give the room an elegant touch.
In this white transitional living room, touches like the exposed beams and sliding barn door are charmingly matched with this mountain home's rustic setting. Behind the barn door, graphic wallpaper is a fun reveal.
The homeowners wanted a luxurious master space for their elegant winter home that was layered in rich texture and metallics, but didn't take away from the open, calming view of the mountains and palm trees that surround the home. To appease these desires, designers wrapped the room in textured metallic grasscloth wallpaper and layered tonal fabrics that make the room rich with shine and depth.
